Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi (1165-1240) and Jalaluddin Rumi (1207-1273) are unquestionably the two great pillars of Islamic mysticism. They appeared in the same century, one from the Muslim West, the other from the East, bringing a glorious new vision of human potential and realization that has been a source of inspiration ever since. Their words continue to touch us directly, inviting us to explore the heart as the place of wisdom and love.
This conference dedicated to both these spiritual masters will be a unique opportunity to explore and discuss their teachings with leading scholars in the field. There will be lectures and workshops as well as poetry readings and musical performances.
